IO Challenge- Harvest Treats (Fruits/Veggies/Pumpkins)

Greetings friends.  Today's challenge is all about the harvest....lots of fruits and vegetables.  For those of you who know me, you know I had to do pumpkins.  I also had to add a punny sentiment.  That's just the way I roll.

To make the card, I first started by making my frame.  I painted some 140lb watercolor paper with various autumnal colors of watercolor paint.  I spritzed it to let the colors blend and then let the paper dry.  Once dry, I cut out my frame using the Large Frame die.

For my gourd truck, I cut out the truck from light yellow cardstock and then deepened the yellow on the fenders using a Copic marker.  I made sure to sponge a lot of Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink onto the truck to make it look like it was on a farm.  I then loaded the truck with some pumpkins and added my sentiment.

The punny sentiment comes from a clear set that has other puns such as:
Life is Gourd
Hello Gourdous
Oh  Gourd Gracious

I can't tell you how happy this set makes me!  Just FYI...the stamp set comes with a truck set.  I decided to use a die instead so that I could load it with pumpkins, but you could just as easily use the truck in the set.

Here is a close up of the truck:
